Maritimo launches S75 Sedan Motor Yacht
Leading Australian luxury long range motor yacht manufacturer, Maritimo, announces the arrival of the much lauded and truly grand Maritimo S75 Sedan Motor Yacht.
The S75 is the embodiment of everything that is Maritimo, in a form that balances authority and grace in every way and from every angle. The confident and deliberate lines, further accentuated by the extended hardtop that delivers significant coverage and protection from the elements, afford a definitively commanding presence. Along with the sleek Portofino hips that frame a delicate reverse sheer, the overall aesthetic somewhat beliesthe S75’s overall and very distinct proportions. Purposeful black accents on the targa bar, housing radar and satellite domes, give a sports-like feel and only serve to further accentuate and encapsulate the S75’s sleek profile and form.
Maritmo’s long range blue water cruising credentials are undeniable, and the S75 will further augment this stance. Maritimo’s signature deep-sided walkaround decks are effortlessly integrated into the form of the S75, and lead to the capacious forward outdoor lounge area, with a free-standing sun bed and forward-facing lounge.
The S75’s hull design is purposeful and visually communicates an inherent strength and ability to effortlessly and comfortably soak up long distances of travel. From the exterior, the massive panoramic glass areas in the hull and saloon tease at what will be on offer for the occupants gazing outwards. The curvature of the front screen is an engineering masterpiece and integrates gloriously with the molded form of the saloon.
Upon stepping on board the S75 the vast, open nature of the rear Adventure Deck is apparent, and very much delivers on the all-important grandeur a superyacht commands. At just shy of 200-square-feet, it is big enough to play basketball while at anchor—place a hoop on the back of the targa bar and shoot from the free throw line all day long. There’s genuine space for everyone on board to partake in all manner of adventures and water-based activities. The options are about as endless as the area is expansive.
Sitting just above the waterline, the Adventure Deck creates a visual and functional connectivity with the ocean, where all adventures outside the vessel await, and upon return provides a welcoming space for lounging, barbecuing, and total relaxation. This is the ultimate stage for absolute action and adventure, or lounging and laughter with cocktails and tunes.
Stepping up to the grand upper-cockpit deck space and alfresco lounging area, these superbly appointed and exceptionally functional connected spaces offer abundant opportunities for entertaining and alfresco dining, or full weather protection should the need arise.
Maritimo’s renowned style and practicality is demonstrated once againwith the aft galley, offering the most refined palette of materials and finishes, along with the highest level of appliances, to deliver understated elegance and superior usability. The S75’s galley serves both in and outdoor dining areas and socially connects chef and guests alike. A deep understanding of the requirements for extended stays aboard are evident in the S75’s thoughtful storage and design functionality.
Flowing through into the saloon, panoramic glazed areas create a light and airy space and fill the frames with a gallery of seascapes. This plush and relaxing zone offers dedicated lounging and dining options. An enormous 65-inch screen on the port side reveals itself via electric lift. It’s your home-away-from-home cinema that adds to the superyacht feel, and is unmatched in this class. Additionally, the screen can be swivelled and subsequently viewed from the galley, and even the upper cockpit.
An elevated cruising lounge allows for great interaction with those on the helm, who are also highly pampered with ergonomically designed and electrically adjustable heated helm seats, and a careful consideration of controls and instrumentation.
The atrium stairwell at the front of the saloon floats in space and captures light to create a welcoming arrival point to the accommodation level below.
The master stateroom is an indulgent sanctuary within an abundance of space and light, delivered by glazing from both sides of the room. Sumptuous materials exude grand luxury and privacy creating a calming space for a well-earned respite. The master stateroom takes advantage of the full beam of the vessel with a grand, centrally located king size berth. The three-quarter beam master ensuite adjoins and also provides an abundance of space and storage, while bespoke materials and fixtures soakin natural light and fresh air via the large hull window and opening.
Light, open, and abundantly luxurious staterooms and amenities are further forward and below, with the forward stateroom and ensuite and starboard stateroom and bathroom, accommodating up to four guests in grand comfort.
cross the entire S75 the level of craftsmanship is highly apparent. The devil really is in the detail, and the S75 reveals a depth of design and build consideration on a heightened level, even in the ‘unseen areas’ where manufacturers traditionally may have made some short cuts.
“You’ll notice that there are smooth molded finishes everywhere on the vessel—even in the engine room when you look up,” said MaritimoOperations Director, Phil Candler.
“This is the result of continued development in our production processes and how we have designed and constructed the S75. It really is a new era for Maritimo,” Candler continued. “The main moldings are backed up with molded liners, which not only allow us to create sub-assemblies for synchronised production flow, it creates even more inherent strength in the vessel. We’ve added to our patented liner system,which affordseven greater ocean-going capabilities and further minimizes any noise and vibration.”
The power to weight ratio and cruising capabilities have been perfectly paired with the S75, with the twin Scania 1150hp DI16 V8 engines. Maritimo is also the first Australian manufacturer to offer anoptionalRolls Royce Power Systems mtu, which are available in the twin1625hp2000 Series V10 engines. Performance, reliability, serviceability, and range are always at the forefront of engines chosen by Maritimo.
“We are incredibly proud to be launching this majestic vessel and of what it represents for Maritimo,” said Tom Barry-Cotter, Managing Director of Maritimo. “The S75 is the culmination of over three years of development by the dedicated Maritimo team. The company has invested hundreds of thousands of hours in the planning, development, and pre-production of the S75, collaborating with Maritimo owners intensively throughout the process.”
“When you consider the evolution of Maritimo over the last 20 years,it is clear that the foundations for the development of the S75 really started back then.” Barry-Cotter went on to say. “WhenBill Barry-Cotter founded Maritimo back in 2003, he had the vision to see the scale of vessels that we would be producing today, and he set about creating an environment where that would be possible.”
“The global launch of the S75 heralds the start of Maritmo’s 20th Anniversary celebrations,” Barry-Cotter continued.“And what could be more fitting in our 20th year than releasing this grand vessel? The S75 is the epitome of everything that is Maritimo.”
